The build process of the module has to build a static version of
the module (or just a set of .o files); then luatexlib.mk needs extra
variable entries for calling that build process and linking its results
into the binary; then in lua/luastuff.c you have to add the appropriate
C function call to the luainterpreter() function.

Cross your fingers and run build.sh.
